The LFS livecd is a "sane build environment" it has the lfs sources,
gcc, etc needed to use the os as a build platform to compile linux on
your hardware.
the usual ./configure && make && make install are fully functional.
though the lfs book , specially for the livecd has a couple of configure
options that are useful, such as not using localization.
